Jets, Dustin Byfuglien agree to terminate his contract

Dustin Byfuglien and the Winnipeg Jets agreed to mutually terminate his contract Friday, potentially marking the end of a playing career for "Big Buff."

The agreement ended a lengthy dispute between Byfuglien and the organization over his absence this season. Because there was no financial settlement as part of the termination, the defenseman walked away from the $14 million remaining on his contract with no guarantee he'll play again.

"This was never our desired outcome or ending with Dustin," Winnipeg general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said on a conference call with reporters. "If it were the Jets writing the perfect script, it would've ended with Dustin holding a great, big silver trophy over his head at center ice and flashing that great, big smile of his."
